    6 Months Post Accutane

    My skins still clear! Accutane is still working for me. I was really worried that I would break out after my accutane treatment but my skin has, if anything, gotten better. I'm really happy with it. Anyone taking accutane, KEEP WITH IT. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I know it sucks having acne, my acne was terrible and totally screwed my life for 5 years, but it seems that accutane has cleared it, and I'm sure it will for you.

    your scars will heal up faster once your off accutane. the drug makes your skin heal slower, and sometimes look flushed. this goes away when your done. that how it worked for me. your skin doesnt even look bad dude, really it doesnt

    9 days post accutane

    I've been don for over a week, and unfortunately, I can see my skin breaking out again. Im only getting small zits, and they really dont look that bad, hardly noticable but still it sucks breaking out so early after getting off. A week ago I had my last accutane dermatologist appointment and he said a second course ould definately be an option if I felt I needed it, so hopefully I can get on it again laer this summer. All in all, I'm really happy I did it. I dont think my skin will ever be as

    day 146

    I think today is 126? I only have 7 pills left. My skin is looking good, the red marks have healed almost completely. I still get small zits, but they usually disappear after an hour or two. Haven't gotten a cyst since february. This feels awesome. I really can't describe the way I've changed. My confidence is so much higher. If your thinking of taking accutane, go for it. Everyone is different but here are some things I've learned. If your a guy, I wouldn't shave right before you have to

    I think today is 124. My skin is looking really good. My red marks have faded well and I'm not getting any new nig zits. i'm still getting some small ones but they are tiny and come and go within hours. Everything is going well. Side effects are the same. Still have dry lips and thats about it.

    day 108

    Im not even sure if people are reading this haha but if you are then I'm sorry i havent posted in a while. My skins been looking good, i've barely been breaking out at all and my post acne finally looks pretty much gone. I'm really loving accutane right now. Side effects arent too bad. my lips are still dry, but its not to bad. The only thing that really bothers me is how easily my face flushes. It gets red easily and looks bad, so I'm trying to stay out of the sun. Overall, things are goi

    day 83

    My skins looking pretty good. Still not great but im felling good about it for the first time in months. I still break out a little but not to bad, and the post acne red marks are finally healing and look so much better. My side effects are the same, dry lips, kind of dry skin. my hands get really dry and crack, which sucks. But overall not to bad. The only real problem I have right now is shaving. My beard grows fast, I have to shave every two or three days. But my skisn really sensitive,

    Looking for feedback on my scars.

    My skin looks just like that. I think you have some scarrign but its pretty mild. It will probably look alot better when the hyperpigmentation fades. I wouldn't sweat it dude. Even if there are permanent scars they look pretty shallow and could probably be easy to fix.

    Cyst removed in doctor's office

    Cysts can stay around for months. Whatever you do, don't mess with it, it will only make it worse. Idk if your student doctor will be able to drain your cyst or not, but there is no harm in going and asking. If not, I would suggest you schedule a dermatologist appointment in your home town the next time you go home.

    day 68

    Ok so I think this is day 68 on accutane. Last friday I went to get my monthly check up. The doctor didnt really say anything just said that hes going to keep me at only 30 mgs, which is fine I guess. My skin is actually looking pretty good. The post acne redmarks are really fading quickly now and I havent broken out in 2 weeks. I have one small white head on my chin, and thats it. I'm really feeling good about my appearance for the first time in over 5 months. I saw a picture of myself from

    Day 35- Oil is back!

    Hey, I just finished my second month on accutane and throughout the first month an a half or so my oiliness came and went to so thats nothing to be worried about I think.

    help pls :((

    your skins not bad dude
  15. bengalsfan13

    AHHHHHH what is going on????

    Sorry your having breakouts. Do you maybe sleep on the left side of your face? That could explain why your breaking out only in that area. I would try to sleep on your back or change your sheets often and see if that helps. As for the current breakout, Idk everyone is different. Ice doesn't work to well for me either. I usually just take long hot showers and let them take care of themselves. If your only breaking out in one part of your face, I wouldn't sweat it I'm sure it doesnt look to bad.

    day 57

    Day 57. It was a little foolish for me to claim my skin was looking so much better because of the proactiv. Initially, my post acne redness did look a lot better, but its kind of reversed itself? Idk. But it does look a little better and I can tell its healing. My skin is looking ok. Still have the redmarks, and I'm still breaking out on about a weekly basis, but the breakouts are really mild. On a positive note, the blackheads on my face are nearly gone. Its amazing seeing my nose nto infest

    Does acne run in your family?

    Yea it does. My dad had severe acne as a kid, my mom had mild. I have moderate to severe. My sisters had mild to moderate. Acne is realted to genes.

    day 45

    I cant believe this is day 45. Anyways my skin is looking alot better. A week ago I was so fed up with my post acne marks that I put a ton of proactiv repairing lotion on my spots. I did this for a few days, and at first it made my skin look so much worse, but i had school off and just stayed in the house. As i was saying it made my post acne look a lot worse, but after a few days my skin dried up and started peeling, revealing fresh skin under these spots. My skins still kind of bad but its ten

    "Severe acne" - and I've tried almost everything

    Hey man. I have a very similiar case. I'm also 17 and I've tried alot of the OTC products you have and all the antibiotics you have to. I'm taking accutane right now and yea it kind of sucks but I know that this is the only thing that can make me clear. Honestly if you've tried all these supplements and different combinations of topicals and antibiotics then chances are your the same. At the end of the day all those regimens and products are pretty similiar your not going to find some miracle

    day 34

    Things are going about the same. I got one new zit this week. It was pretty big but it came to a head and drained in two days. Now its just another red mark. My blackheads are decreasing, and I'm looking forwared to seeing more progress. My face looks pretty bad right now. I don't have any actives now though, which is encouraging. Its just these red marks. They're everywhere and they don't seem to be fading. And it sucks because I know that it will realisticly be a few more months before this

    Done with month one

    Your taking 120 mgs a day? Thats really high, no wonder your side effects have been rough.

    day 31

    I don't want to jinx myself, but i feel like i've turned the corner on this. I haven't gotten a new zit in over a week. I dont think ive been able to say that for 6 years lol. My nose has always been absolutely infested with blackheads, but there starting to disappear. My back is 100% clear, too. I had my one month checkup the other day. My doc says to up the dosage to 40 mgs a day, which is fine with me. My side effects are getting a little worse. I just had a bad nose bleed earlier. My s
  23. Hi everyone. I had my one month accutane check up earlier. I had previously been on a month of 30 mg per day, and my doctor decided to keep me at this level. But I';m considering taking a higher dosage instead. It just seems to me that a higher dosage would produce faster and longer term results. Is this accurate? does the do higher dosages work better than lower?

    Day 25

    I think its day 25. Anyways that bad breakout I had earlier in the week is pretty much gone now and my skin looks pretty decent. My post acne marks are definately still noticeable but have improved a lot. My face is covered in tons of tiny black heads. They don't really bother me, its kind of cool seeing the accutane pushing everything out. Side effects are pretty much the same. Dry lips, kind of dry skin. My lower back hurts sometimes but its not really a big deal. My one month checkup
